Questions with answers:
1. What is Bedlam?
The intersection of Fae, Hell and Oblivion, Bedlam is a tertiary plane of existence. According to basic Planar Theory, overlapping planes create a new plane, separate from the overlapping ones. This new plane inherits traits and qualities from the overlapping planes, as well as acquiring unique traits of its own. This means Bedlam has traits from Fae, Hell and Oblivion, as well as whatever other traits it developed on its own. As of April 1009, Bedlam is also an unstable plane which currently flows out to envelop all which surrounds it.
2. Why do Fae go to Bedlam when struck with Wayland blades?
The creatures we know as "Fae" are actually not natural denizens of Fae at all. At what is likely the beginning of mortal creation, the "Fae" were pulled out of Bedlam as points of light and took shape as we know them now. When Wayland crafted his blades to use against the "Fae", he took their souls and pounded them into swords. The Wayland Blades he created acted as a Bane weapon, banishing a "Fae's" soul back to its original plane of existence. In this case, the plane is Bedlam.
3. Are the Bois of Bedlam "Fae"?
Yes and no. The current inhabitants of Fae do share some of the same qualities of the Bois. This is to be expected given they share the same origin. "Fae", however, all possess the "Light". This "Light" is the difference between a "Fae" who has taken shape and lives among us, and a Bois who is mindless and only seeks to consume.
